    or: am i being a bit prejudiced and not really giving a fair shake?

    it's October and Iowa-Arkie State?

    snooze. shouldn't the Hawkeyes be playing one of their conference mates for the Big Potato Trophy or something?

    Do you get the Big 10 Network? Buried in the 400s on Comcast, but Michigan-Michigan St is pretty good right now.

    After an INT, UM goes for it on 4th down with a fake punt. Failed.

    MSU ball on UMs 13.

    Bad call.

    I'm sort-of watching Minny-Wisc on ESPN. They have a nice new stadium but that's about the only good thing I'm seeing. It's 13-10 Minny in the third and seems to be a turnover-fest.

    The only thing worse than Big 10 basketball is Big 10 football.

    both these teams are taking turns pissing their pants with turnovers, missed opportunities, and penalties. "sort of watching" is about right.

    No kidding -- it's turned into a pass-happy MWC-type game. Getting 31 points in the Big 10 is HUGE. lol

    Well I'm glad I kept that one on in the background. The fourth quarter was fun to watch.

    The conference plays some of the most boring football on the planet. And ESPN's Saturday noon love affair with the conference makes it just that much worse.

    Chokeaholics in big bowl games over the past few years too. Hope the Buffs don't try to pull a coach from that conference if a change is made.

    Yep, and it's so annoying that no matter how badly OSU or PSU get spanked when they play real teams outside of the Big 10 in those games, they're up in the upper echelon when the rankings come out the next season. The bias is ridiculous.

    I'm so stoked when those two teams lose.

    I watched ohio state vs indiana. They could have scored 60 but pryor has got to be the most over-rated qb in college football. Cody is more accurate :lol:

    Tressell is as conservative as they come but their offense is bad once they get inside the 30.

    Right, and that same unjustified ranking is what keeps buying OSU a ticket to the big show only to get blown out by a team that deserves the ranking.

    OSU could be the most boring of the bunch, wait I forgot about Wisconsin. :lol:
